A touch of Italian bubbly adds the right touch

Before or after going to a museum exhibit, a glass of wine tends to enrich the experience. My wife, Mary Pat, and I discovered that recently in Florence when, after seeing the exhibit "La Primavera Del Rinascimento" ("Springtime of the Renaissance"), which runs through Aug. 18 at the Palazzo Strozzi — which is just off the Piazza della Repubblica — we stopped in the Caffe Giacosa outlet that sits in the palazzo's courtyard.

The wine, I recall, was a tasty prosecco. Don't hate, Tricia Jo, don't hate.
